Repaired Kilim Chewed by Dog

After cleaning the kilim, we rebuilt the warp and rewove the missing sections.  We took care to reconstruct the embroidered motifs (the purple and green motifs were particularly damaged).  We removed the binding of the fringe (the white line along the fringe visible in the "before" picture) while we rewove and repaired the damage area.   After we took the picture above, we rewove the binding so as to minimize the risk of future unraveling.  In addition, we cut some of the fringe so that it measured approximately the same as the original fringe.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
